Episode 3 Wednesday


All people are buried facing the East.”

“Why is that?”

“I think it’s so they can see the rising of the sun on Judgment Day.”

Joanne walked around the graves in a wide detour, being very careful to not even take a shortcut across the corners. She knelt down and held two sides of the paper taut across the inscription. George held another side and began going back and forth across the paper with a soft pencil. George stopped for a moment. “I make out ‘William T.’” He resumed rubbing the pencil across the inscription. “Quillen—born June 10 1860—died March 21 1940—husband of Rachel Anne.”

Joanne smoothed the holes in the soil from George’s knees and toes. “William T Quillen lived to the ripe old age of 80. That was a rarity back in the 1930’s. He probably was a dirt poor farmer with very little pleasure in life. Nothing but work and poverty all his life.”

George used his notebook to write down all the information pertaining to the grave. Section, row and number. He laid the note book down and smiled widely at Joanne. “I think we should give ole William T a little excitement in his afterlife. He’s been laying there for 70 years and nobody has paid much attention to him.” He paused for a moment. “We can remedy that.”
